It’s been in the works for a while, so Microsoft sets the date for Xbox One Experience to play old games from Xbox 360 that have been announced for months.
- The Xbox One Experience will be the biggest update for the console released until now
- It will make changes in both the interface, and boost performance
- The update will be bringing forth Windows 10 as an OS for the console
- It will also launch with the backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games
- The New Xbox One Experience will be released on November 12th
The New Xbox One Experience (NXOE) is, simply put, an update. However, it’s the biggest update to arrive for the console yet. It will be rolled out with many new snazzy features, a different interface, and the long-awaited backwards compatibility. And it’s really not far away.
The release date for the major update has been set on November 12th. This has placed some doubt around users of the Xbox One Preview Program, but the reported glitches and errors might be fixed by the official launch. For some, it sounds far too early, but for most gamers who are eager to test out the new version, the excitement has been building up for a long time.
While an update perhaps doesn’t sound as the biggest event in history considering Xbox rolls out several of them per year, this one will be the most pronounced one yet. This is because of two major changes that will included on the next-generation console.
For one, Microsoft’s Xbox One will be getting Windows 10. The operating system that is naturally attributed to desktop PCs and laptops will be arriving on the console in just a matter of a few weeks. This is just one of the many efforts of the company to bring their newest OS on every device and platform in existence. The good news is that is has been met with excellent reviews, so they cannot be accused of pushing a bad product forward.
Xbox One will be receiving a revamp of its interface, and promises that the lagging and glitches will be fixed via Windows 10. When the console will be running the latest OS, loads will reportedly be instant, with new features to make navigation much simpler. Both performance and aspect will be affected by the update.
Microsoft has also called the upcoming update as the “most social” one to arrive yet. This is due to the fact that they will be placing an emphasis on friends list, messaging, and keeping track of what games they’re playing.
The second major addition will be the highly anticipated backwards compatibility feature. Xbox One will become enabled to play 100 games that were originally made for Xbox 360. Old games will be playable, be it for the purpose of revisiting them, or the simple matter that you never owned the last-gen console.
It should be reminded that there is a list of games available for download, instead of working with old Xbox 360 discs. However, it’s still excellent news to arrive before the holidays.
